# Acceleration, Velocity & Net Force on a Car

A 1500-kg car travels at a constant speed of 22m/s around a circular track that has a radius of 85m.

Determine the:

A. Magnitude of Acceleration of the car

B. Average Velocity of the car during one revolution

C. Magnitude of the net force that acts on the car.

#### Solution Preview

A.

The speed is constant, hence the acceleration is radial (has no tangential component).

The centripetal acceleration is given by:

a =(V^2)/R

Where V is the tangential #speed# and R is the radius of rotation.

The direction of the ...
